Mavis, Fox Creek, and Virginia Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You’ll likely spend more time driving than hiking on this trip; the upside is that you’ll likely have this area mostly to yourself. Even Mavis Lake, the easiest of the lakes to reach from both the north and south sides, is generally not overcrowded—if you don’t count the cows. Fortunately, the cows don’t get all the way to Virginia Lake, and neither do many bipeds either. All three lakes are bordered by picturesque meadows with wider and more open basins than around many other Trinity Alps lakes. All three have excellent campsites and good fishing. The catch will probably be pan-sized eastern brook trout, but an occasional lunker brown, left over from a long-ago planting, may thrill anglers in Mavis or Fox Creek lakes. Mavis Lake warms up first, but even Virginia Lake is usually warm enough for swimming by mid-August."
